In this Fantasy Bundesliga article, we will not be focusing on the most obvious premium options such as Timo Werner and Robert Lewandowski. Instead, we will take a look at the players who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 20.

Goalkeepers:

Priced at just 1 million, Robin Zentner (Mainz, 1M) remains the best bargain goalkeeper. Philipp Pentke (Hoffenheim, 1.1M) is a cheap alternative for now at least, with Hoffenheim coach Alfred Schreuder confirming that the 34-year-old will stay in goal for the next few games while Oliver Baumann works on his recovery.

If you're willing to invest a little more in a goalkeeper, you could bring in Leopold Zingerle (Paderborn, 5M), Zack Steffen (Fortuna Düsseldorf, 6.2M) or Timo Horn (FC Köln, 6.3M).

Defenders:
Ismail Jakobs (FC Köln, 1.4M) remains a solid low-price pick, priced at just 1.4 million and playing as a winger.

Almamy Touré (Frankfurt, 4.2M) capped a fine display against RB Leipzig with a well-taken goal last week and has shown earlier in the season that he has the potential to pick up plenty of points.

You could also look at his teammate Timothy Chandler (Frankfurt, 5.1M) who has started as a right winger in both Frankfurt's games so far in 2020. He's a slight rotiation risk, though, with Danny da Costa pushing to start.

Maximilian Mittelstädt (Hertha BSC, 6.6M) was the second-highest scoring defender of Matchday 19, racking up 19 points, and should be in the starting eleven for once more against Schalke.

Daley Sinkgraven (Leverkusen, 8M) has picked up a solid amount of points in 2020 so far and should keep his place at left-back ahead of Wendell.

Philipp Max (Augsburg, 13.1M) and Achraf Hakimi (Dortmund, 14.1M) are both great picks if you have a little more to spend.

Midfielders:
Christoph Baumgartner (Hoffenheim, 6.8M) has started both Hoffenheim's games in 2020 and has emerged as an intriguing option at 6.8 million after he crowned a great performance with a goal against Werder Bremen on Matchday 19.

Eduard Löwen (Augsburg, 7.M) was one of the bright spots for Augsburg last week after coming on as a substitute, and the Hertha loanee is likely to make his first start against Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Changhoon Kwon (Freiburg, 7.7M) has done well in both of Freiburg's first two games of 2020 and should keep his spot in the starting eleven against FC Köln.

Michael Gregoritsch (Schalke 04, 10.1M) and Suat Serdar (Schalke 04, 11.2M) both look like solid picks, with Schalke having an attractive run of fixtures coming up.

Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig, 12.3M) picked up 12 points last week which is impressive considering the fact that Leipzig lost 2-0 to Frankfurt. This time, he may pick up even more points when 'Die Roten Bullen' take on Gladbach at home.

Leon Goretzka (Bayern München, 13M) has looked impressive in 2020 and will look to continue his good form against Mainz.

Strikers:
Mark Uth (FC Köln, 9.5M) has had a great start to life at FC Köln, scoring in his first two games after joining from Schalke on loan.

Augsburg aren't exactly in great form, but have a good chance of bouncing back as they face Werder Bremen at home. Having racked up 10 goals and eight assists this season, Florian Niederlechner (Augsburg, 11M) is often involved when Augsburg score.

Finally, Erling Haaland (Dortmund, 13M) deserves a mention, of course. The Norwegian striker has scored five goals in two games and could potentially make his first start against Union Berlin on Saturday.
